for congress. add it all up. >> right. >> like harry reid's great disappointing act. harry reid is not very popular at this point, either. hiding division among democrats by turning to the world's least conservative body. they haven't done anything and no budget. that's what's interesting about that great congress number, you add up people who hate congress from both sides. >> yeah. 81% is a big number. that is the one thang that ordinary americans and both parties, independents, as well, agree on. >> not just the nasty tea party republicans in the house. anyway, john, thank you. your haircut looks good. >> thanks, man. >> you're welcome. and duke looked good yesterday. >> i was going to say, there are some of us who were not watching the oprah interview because we had important things to do. >> i had to wash my hair and my nails. >> you guys get a second chance tonight. >> like him. >> like you're giving him. >> go ahead. >>> coming up, the story behind the drop in intel shares, we're going to talk about it. plus, we're gearing up for ow newsmaker of the morning. we have morgan stanley's c
